I love the Fall season, it cools us off, brings rain, and makes you want to stay inside and cuddle in front of the fireplace! Another wonderful thing about Fall is the craving for comfort foods. There’s nothing like a warm, home-cooked meal or a good, simple crockpot recipe! Soups are a favorite around here, so I decided I would make something hearty, delicious, and painless. After a little research and a trip to the grocery store, sprucing up an old favorite was the choice – and this bacon and corn chowder soup was born.

Bacon Corn Chowder soup ingredients in the slow cooker crock pot

Step 1: Add ingredients to the slow cooker

Take all ingredients, except for the heavy cream, butter, and garnish, and throw in the slow cooker. The chicken broth should be enough to cover all of the other ingredients. If not, add a little more until everything is submerged.

*NOTE: Be sure to set aside a few bacon crumbles if you want to use some as garnish.

Step 2: Slow cook soup for 8 hours, add ingredients, and blend

Set it, and FORGET IT! Cook on low for 8 hours. Go ahead, get some sleep! When it’s done, take half of the soup mixture and pulse in a blender.

Put the blended soup back into the slow cooker, add the butter and heavy cream, and mix thoroughly. Cook on the low setting for 1 more hour. That’s it!

  • I’m always looking for a new slow cooker recipe and this one looks delicious! It’s perfect for the cooler weather we are having. The family will love this!

  • I just started making soup and this seems like a really easy way to do it. And it does look delicious. I think I’m going to add a few more veggies and make this for my dad. He will love it. Thanks!

  • Looked to good to pass up and I had some heavy cream in the fridge that needed to be liberated from its container. We’ll see what the family thinks tonight. BTW, I am adding some left over turkey at the end… just to use up some leftovers and to add a bit of protein. Thanks.

  • This looks yummy. I have a recipe that I would love sharing on your blog using the cans get cooking campaign. Let me know if you are interested.
